I got GROOMED!!!!!

This evening I went to give the goos a treat and possible a scratch if they let me (I'm still taming them) and the greatest thing happened!!!! I held my hand out to the momma goo with a piece of guinea pig food in it (I don't like over feeding treats, so after treats they get pellets) and instead of going for the treat, she just kind of stared at the edge of my hand. The next thing I knew, she was sniffing, then licking, and grooming the side of my little finger! I've heard that grooming is a kind of trust/bonding action... I'm so pleased that I got to experience this today! My male has given me a few little nips (no broken skin though) but more like, "i'm tasting you to see if you are a treat" nip than greeting or grooming nips...
It's amazing how gentle these little guys can be (I know how quickly they can be sharp though )
